Welcome to the History Distance Learning Page! Here you can find some challenges that you might like to do at home as well as some useful links for some history websites and tours!
As we are in the makings of history, why not write a diary to record your experience of distance learning! You never know, someone could read your diary in 100 years time and learn all about what YOU were doing at this significant moment in history!
The children still at school have very cleverly named themselves class 'History Makers' and have created this wonderful display on the school playground! Thank you to Mr Kemp and Mr Sperring for organising this beautfiul art display!
This is a great opportunity to write a fictional story of your choice that is set in a historical period of time (e.g. the second world war, the stone age etc). This could be the historical period of time that we have been learning about, or just one that you are really interested in!
The Historical Association is running this as national competition (for Year 5 and 6). The entries from Year 5 and 6 will need to be emailed to Miss Sharratt on or before the 15th of May. The wonderful Mrs Kitching’s will be judging the stories and selecting three ‘winners’ from the school to be sent off to the competition, these will then be judged with other stories from across the UK! There will be a prize for the best historical story AND a prize for the best fictional historical character that fits in with your period of time!
However, it would be a great opportunity for all years to do, so therefore we will be having a Great Missenden ‘historical fiction’ competition as well! All entries need to be emailed into Miss Sharratt (3S@gmglt.co.uk) by the 15th of May.
Please email Miss Sharratt at 3S@gmglt.co.uk for any queries or questions.
